Suppose that the S&P 500, with a beta of 1.0, has an expected return of 10% and T-bills provide a risk-free return of 4%. ( LO1 )
a. How would you construct a portfolio from these two assets with an expected return of 8%?
b. How would you construct a portfolio from these two assets with a beta of .4?
c. Show that the risk premiums of the portfolios in (a) and (b) are proportional to their betas.
